IRIT EPSTEIN

Dynamic Visions
July 8 – July 28, 2016
Reception: Thursday, July 14, 2016 6-8 PM

Irit Epstein regards her lively abstract works as “a personal diary”. Epstein depicts human figures moving through a world of shapes: beautifully striated layers of lines, rows of triangles, and less defined multi-sided shapes that overlap to create a mysterious, lush environment. These worlds are not purely nonrepresentational – there are foregrounds, backgrounds, and recognizable objects that display realistic behaviors, such as the casting of shadows. Sometimes there are trees, stone paths, houses, or pyramids visible among the geometric constructions. The artist is interpreting a landscape, not making one up.
Yet above all, Epstein is playing with pattern and composition, as it relates to both shape and color. She works primarily in oil on canvas, with pieces ranging from one to four feet tall. She uses this medium, rich in depth and translucency, to its full potential.

Epstein was born in Israel, studied art in Berlin and art therapy in New York City, and today lives in Toronto, Canada. She has exhibited in Germany, Italy, Mexico, Israel, Canada, and the United States.
